1789 Restaurant

1226 36th St. N.W.
Washington, DC, 20007, United States
TEL: (202) 965-1789

This Federal-style townhouse on a quiet street in Georgetown was converted into a restaurant in 1960. Taking its name from the year the Constitution was adopted, 1789 occupies six cozy dining rooms within an elegant and renovated two-story townhouse furnished with period American antiques. Chef Anthony Lombardo's roast pheasant and Carolina red snapper are served on Limoges china and silver, and the whole affair is warmed by fireplaces and a gas chandelier. 

Insider Tip:

Not the place to stumble into after a day of sightseeing, 1789 takes a more formal approach to dining. Jackets on the gentlemen are preferred.
